Detroit Lions Claim Corner Josh Thomas Off Waivers

Josh Thomas was claimed last night off waivers by the Detroit Lions to fill the roster spot vacated when they placed right tackle LaAdrian Waddle on injured reserve.  Thomas, a 5th round pick in 2011, was waived by the New York Jets this past week.  The Lions can always use depth at corner, and likely want a chance to evaluate what he can do, while using him immediately in the special teams.  Thomas has prototypical size at 5 foot 11 and 185 pounds.  He has bounced around the league so far due to not being good enough to stick.  The Lions will likely take a long look at him now and decide on his future with the team depending on how he handles Teryl Austin’s system.
